John Cage Song Books
In collaboration with Poet in the City, experimental vocalist Elaine Mitchener presents an event celebrating John Cage’s iconic Song Books, a cornucopia of innovative musical ideas, codes and fragments that reconsider the lyric in an unlikely guise. Shards of text disrupt and distract, demonstrating his famous claim that ‘there is poetry as soon as we realize that we possess nothing’.
Produced and directed by Elaine Mitchener, and featuring dancers from Van Huynh Company, composer Matt Wright and designer Brenda Mayo.
